VII

The Lost Number is an optional boss in Final Fantasy VII. After entering the right combination for the safe in the Shinra Mansion, it will attack the player party. The combination is: (Right 36), (Left 10), (Right 59), (Right 97).

After its defeat, the player obtains Cosmo Memory, the Odin Materia and a key to the Mansion's basement, which can be used to recruit Vincent to the party.

Since Lost Number drops the unique and (normally) non-duplicatable Cosmo Memory, the player may want to duplicate it by means of the repeating boss glitch that allows one to fight bosses twice. To do this the player must skip a random battle by opening the menu the instant the game wants to give a random encounter on a field map. There is no particular benefit to having more than one Cosmo Memory item, however.

BattleEdit

The Lost Number consists of two halves: the purple half which performs physical attacks and the red half which casts magic. After reducing his HP below 3,498, the Lost Number will change completely into one of his sides.

The Lost Number changes depending on the attack that caused the reduction:

  • If the damage was inflicted by a magic attack, Lost Number will turn red and gain a substantial increase in its Magic and Magic Defense stats. It will attack with powerful magic from then on. In this state, it has lower DEF, so the party should use physical attacks.
  • If the damage was inflicted by a physical attack, Lost Number will turn purple and gain a boost in Attack and Defense. It will attack with strong physical attacks from then on. This form has low MDEF, so the party should attack with spells. This form is dangerous because he may inflict over 2400 damage with Lost Blow.
  • If the damage was inflicted via Poison, no effect will happen until Lost Number takes a physical or magical attack. Thus, if the player chooses to defeat Lost Number with Poison only, he will never change form.

If the player has obtained Cloud's Limit Break Cross-slash, or Aeris's Limit Break Seal Evil, they can be used to paralyze Lost Number.

TriviaEdit

  • The Lost Number's name and appearance, as well as the location where it is fought, all imply that it is one of Professor Hojo's experiments, and most likely a failed experiment given that it does not have a number.
  • The Lost Number's appearance is similar to that of the Chocobo Eater from Final Fantasy X.
